If you submitted a game but don’t see it here, it’s because I couldn’t make sense of it. Enjoy!

White’s down the exchange but makes up for it by his sweeping Bishops and Black’s airy king shelter.] 19…c5 [19…Nxg3! 20.hxg3 e5! White has to fork up a pawn.] 20.f3 [20.Nxh5 Bxh5=] 20…Bc8 21.Qa3 Nxg3 22.hxg3 Qxg3 23.Re2 cxd4 24.Be1 Qg5 25.Qxe7 d3 26.Qxg5 hxg5 27.Bxd3 Rxd3 28.Re7 a5 29.Bf2 Bf6 30.Ra7 Rd2 31.Bxb6 Rxb2 32.Bxa5 Rc2 33.Rc7 Be6 34.a4 Bd8 35.Ra7 Bxa5 36.Rxa5 Rd8 [36…g4 better] 37.Rxg5 Rxc3 38.a5 Rdc8 39.Kh2 R3c5 [39…Bf5 40.Rg3 Rc1–+] 40.Rxc5 Rxc5 41.a6 Rc8 42.a7 Ra8 43.Kg3 Kf8 44.Kf4 Ke7 45.Kg5 Bd5 46.Ra3 Rg8 47.Rd3 f6+ 48.Kf4 Kd6 49.g3 Ra8 50.Ra3 Kc7 51.Ke3 Kb7 52.Kd4 Bf7 53.Kc5 f5 54.Kd6 Bc4 55.Ke7 g5?

Lawson,B (2036) – Muwwakkil,M (1923) [E00]

Kerr,J (1913) – Frumkin,E (2024) [A42]

Queens CC Jamaica (2), 15.10.2004

1.d4 d6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 Nc6 5.Be3 e5 6.Nf3 Bg4 7.d5 Nd4 8.Be2 8 Nb5 c5 was the continuation in Monvesian (2435) – Zhidkov (2315), a game from 1995 drawn in 31. 8…Nxe2 9.Qxe2 Ne7 10.h3 Bd7 11.Nd2 f5 12.f3 f4 13.Bf2 h6 14.b4 a5 15.Rb1 axb4 16.Rxb4 b6 17.0–0 g5! With the center locked and the queenside far from being opened, Black has free rein on the kingside. White has no good way of defending against the pawn storm. Perhaps that’s why White held on to his KB in the game noted above. 18.a4 h5 19.Ra1 Ng6 20.Nb3 g4 21.fxg4 hxg4 22.hxg4 Qg5 23.a5 Bxg4 24.Qd2 Bf3 25.Be1 Qh5 26.Kf2 Bxg2 27.Qd1 Qh2 28.Ke2 Bf3+ 29.Kxf3 Rh3+ 30.Kg4 Qg2+ 31.Kf5 Ne7+ 0-1

Ryba,A (1149) – Denig,P (1620) [E10]

Queens CC Jamaica (2), 15.10.2004

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.Nf3 e6 4.e3 g6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bd3 b6 The database has 6..

Bottazzi,A – Drazil,F (1561) [B22]

Queens CC Jamaica (2), 15.10.2004

1.e4 c5 2.c3 Nc6 3.Nf3 e5 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.d3 d6 6.Ng5 d5 7.Bb3 [7.exd5+-] 7…h6 8.Nxf7? Kxf7 9.Nd2 Na5 10.Nf3 Bd6 11.exd5 Re8 12.Ba4 Bg4 13.b4 I can only report what the scoresheet says, but it seems likely the game didn’t go down this way as that would mean both players overlooked White’s Ba4 hitting Black’s Re8. 13…cxb4 14.cxb4 Bxb4+ And now the scoresheet gives 15 h3. Black won in 25. 0–1

Swan,P (1411) – Frawley,J (1722) [A58]

Queens CC Jamaica (2), 15.10.2004

Giving up the exchange but eliminating Black’s only useful piece. With the gambit pawn already in the bank plus the pawn just captured on f7, material is equal but the position definitely is not. A gutsy move. 31…Nxf7 32.Qxf7 Qb7 33.Nf4 Re8 34.Ne6 Qb8 35.Na4 Nxe6 36.dxe6+ But this lets Black turn the tables. Instead, 36.Nb6+!! Qxb6 37.dxe6++- 36…Kc6 37.Rh7 (Diagram)


Qd8 [37…Rxa4!! Poetic! Black returns the favor and gives up his rook for a knight. 38.bxa4 Rf8 39.Qxg6 Rf1+ 40.Kh2 d5+! 41.Qg3 (41.g3? Qb2#) 41…Rh1+! 42.Kxh1 Qxg3 and Black wins.] 38.Qxg6 Rg8 39.Qh5 Rh8 40.Qd5+ Kc7 41.Rf7 Rf8 42.Nc3 Kb6 43.Qc4 Re8 44.Qb5+ Ka7 45.Qc6 Qb6 46.Qd7+ Ka6 47.Nd5 1–0

Queens CC Jamaica (2), 15.10.2004

1.d4 d5 2.Nc3 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 This off-beat position only turns up three times in the database. 4 g3, 4 e4, and 4 Bg5 were the tries. 4.e3 Nf6 5.Bd3 Nc6 6.Bd2 0–0 7.0–0 Re8 8.Re1 e5 9.Bb5 e4 10.Ng5 10 Bxc6 and 11 Ne5 is Fritz’s choice. 10…Qd6 [10…h6 11.Nh3 Bxh3 12.gxh3–+] 11.a3 h6 12.Nh3 a6 13.Ba4 b5 14.Bb3 Na5 15.Ba2 Missing 15 Nxe4! with roughly equal chances. 15…Nc4 16.Bc1 Ng4 17.g3 Nf6 18.b3 Nb6 19.Nf4 Bg4 20.Qd2 g5 21.Nfe2 Bf3 22.b4 Qe6 23.Nf4 gxf4 24.exf4 Qh3 25.Qe3 Qg2# 0–1
